Donate to our shops

We completely rely on the generosity of our local community to stock our shops.  We accept a wide variety of items with only a few limitations as dictated by Health and Safety Legislation. You can donate: clothing (ladies, gents, children’s), genuine CDs and DVDs, books, china, bric-a-bra, handbags, jewellery, coats, mirrors… If in doubt, give your local shop a call.


Furniture – our main furniture shop is Ayr, Crown Street which is large enough to accept all kinds of furniture including sofas, wardrobes and dining room tables to name but a few. However please call your local shop to check regarding furniture and electric goods donations as not all our shops are in a position to accept them due to limited back shop space.


We are governed Health and Safety Legislation, the same as any other retail out-let, therefore we are unable to accept:
• Toys without a CE tag
• Children’s car seats
• Soft furnishings without a fire retardant label
• Bicycle helmets


Due to hygiene reasons we are unable to accept:
• Duvets
• Bed pillows (sofa/chair type cushions are perfectly acceptable)
• Underwear, including bra’s


We no longer accept video cassettes due to the lack of demand for them.


Collections - We can arrange free furniture collections – please call our Ayr, Crown Street shop on 01292 619417 to arrange.  We are usually quite busy so please plan in advance – it may be a couple of weeks before we are in your area.


Rags - We sell any heavily worn clothing to our local rag man – so when you’re having a clear out, and even if you don’t think a piece of clothing is suitable for re-sale, start a rag bag and just let the shop know it’s rags when you hand it in – every little helps!


Gift Aid it – For every £1 your donated goods sells for we can claim a further 25p from HM Revenue and Customs if you are a UK tax payer - all you need to do is complete a charity shop gift aid form and we’ll do the rest.
